With seven swimming pools, to-die-for views of the Gulf of Thailand, and nine hectares of lush grounds, there is a long list of reasons to visit InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort. Add to that list the resortâ€™s new three-bedroom villa, which occupies a perch 110-meters above the water offering panoramic views of Koh Samui. Recently unveiled, the hotelâ€™s Napa Reserve Villaâ€”at 320 square metersâ€”is aimed at families and small groups. Each of the three bedrooms is contiguous to its own bathroom, with Sothys beauty products and toiletries from Thai brand Harnn.
In addition to the usual amenitiesâ€”Bose sound system, Nespresso machineâ€”the villa comes with a wine cellar stocked with labels from around the world. A private sundeck leads to a 15-meter pool from where guests will be able to access the private Spa Suite. Expect a custom line of treatments prepared by the resortâ€™s Baan Thai Spaâ€”try the tea ritualâ€”while daily private yoga classes are also available in the privacy of Â the villa. Dedicated amenities for children are another nice touch: from Bliss Monkey turndown gifts to a selection of healthy snacks.
